When billing for anesthesia, you bill all time under the code with the highest base unit value.
I see by the CPT codes that some of these procedures may be considered cosmetic. Are you filing all services with health insurance? If a non-covered service (i.e. cosmetic add on procedure) is performed during an insurance covered procedure you may need to "split bill". It is not appropriate to bill anesthesia time for a non-covered service under a covered service code.
